Oh, this show was not only fun because it rained like crazy but it was fun because the band just pulled out all the stops.

Subject: What's wrong with your ears?
I don't write comments here much but couldn't let this go. Just because you hear some people talking don't assume this is an AUD. Listen to the bass and the upfront vocals. Only a SBD sounds like that. So, at a minimum, it's a MTX, but I don't think so. My best guess is that it's a SBD with a mic in the audience.

Subject: A nice bit of 90's Dead
Almost positive that this is either a quality matrix or a superb aud. Just A Little Light is a great song that I haven't heard too much of but is actually really good. I really dig the use of synths by Brent, my favorite Dead Keyboard player (other than Pigpen). Dark Star is pretty stellar, but not outstanding. Overall, a nice show.

Subject: Cassidy
After reading all of the reviews from all of the sources I can't believe that nobody called out Cassidy. Easily a top 10 all time version of this song. Also I agree with someone who called out Victim. Not a favorite tune of mine but this version is played flawlessly. IMO Victim is a first set song. Its too much of a mood changer to be played in the 2nd set. Along with my first show, 7/13/89, this show is my favorite. This whole night though ranks very high as "MOST PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE" of my life. Thanks buddy for that kind microdot !

I reviewed this show after listening to another source, so I won't bother other than saying this was a FABULOUS show.

This source is NOT a soundboard, as I mentioned in my other review. Maybe it's a matrix recording, because you can hear everyone clearly, and you can CLEARLY hear the tapers talking during some of the songs & during all of the tunings between songs. If someone could change it to read that it's an AUDIENCE recording so we can download it, that would be wonderful.

One of my favorite shows for rain and muddy madness, we gave new meaning that night to the term mosh pit.

Probably my favorite 'Touch of Grey'!

Subject: time of my life
the east coast swing from dc to foxborough to buffalo was amazing. went down from canada with out tickets for dc. no parking in sight. i had to park down the road from the stadium in some shady neighbourhood. on the way back i traded some kind for a ticket. bonus. my brother was miracled by the gate, my buddy scored a ticket as well. it was a rainy day. mud in the infield. foolish heart was amazing and of course box had perfect timing. during the show our initiative was to get to the phil zone. by show's end we were about 15ft from the stage. on the way there we just kept asking "where is phil?" funny.. but all in all a great show, one of the best. 90's shows were their peek.
